Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) are government grants for students in higher education who are obliged to incur additional study-related costs because of a disability, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty.
DSAs are not means tested and are not dependent upon your income or any savings you may have. If you are eligible for a DSA it will not affect any state benefits you may be receiving.
You may still be eligible for a DSA if you are studying part time.
To find out whether you are eligible, take our DSA eligibility quiz.
